Werra joined the executive team as chief growth officer in 2019 with more than 25 years of manufacturing industry leadership focused on technical engineered solutions for heavy industry, according to C&W.

“Coming off of a challenging 2020, we’re entering 2021 with strong momentum due to our team that worked tirelessly to create new processes and systems for our customers who were hit hard by the pandemic,” Werra says. “This team’s commitment to delivering customers new dust technology solutions tees up a very exciting future. I’m honored to step into the role of president, and thank Deryl for his work in building an industry-leading team and company.”
